State Sen. Toni Harp, who represents part of New Haven, was appointed Tuesday to a group formed to reevaluate Connecticut’s readiness in terms of potential terror attacks.

Harp, who was appointed to the committee by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin B. Sullivan, said she wants to help restore a sense of security to the people of Connecticut.

“I’m pleased to have been chosen by Sen. Sullivan to focus on this critically important and timely matter,” Harp said.

The group will work between now and the start of the regular legislative session in February to coordinate prospective legislative proposals with relevant state agencies. This will allow for the consideration of new laws or changes to existing state laws.

“I look forward to working with my legislative colleagues to determine exactly where we are, and where we think we ought to be, in time for the deliberative process to begin in February,” Harp said.
